How to eat while bulking

One of the hardest things to do, for many interested in gaining muscle mass, is eating. They tell you this time and time again that the only way to gain muscle, is to eat in excess. We already went through how much you’re suppose to eat over and that’s just the easy part. Once you’re at least consuming 500 calories over your maintenance, you will gain muscle mass. Of course you have to consume your 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight, and 2 to 2.5 grams of carbohydrates per pound of body weight.

When one is down and depressed, the last thing they want to do is go to the gym or prepare a protein shake or that particular meal for the day. The feeling of bewilderment just overcomes them and they are just overwhelmed with negative emotions.
